Standardized Testing

PLAN and PSAT Administration:

All MHS freshmen students will take the PLAN test in October each year. All sophomore and junior students will take the PSAT/NMSQT on the same day as well. Results will be distributed by the Guidance and College Counseling Office.

SAT and ACT Exams:

MHS recommends that each student take both the SAT and the ACT (with writing) in the spring of their junior year. Based on the results, the student will be able to determine which test they are better suited for and prepare further for that test for the remainder of the spring and into the summer. In the fall, students should take this test a final time in preparation for college admissions. Specific registration and content information can be found on the following websites:
